The Independence Center

About Us

Overview

Working with people with disabilities, their families and the community, we create independence so that all may thrive. The Independence Center is the local home of civil rights for people with disabilities. We support and promote these civil rights throughout our service area which includes El Paso, Cheyenne, Kit Carson, Lincoln, Park and Teller counties. As role models, we sit, stand, or lie at the point where people with disabilities decide whether to create the life they desire or give in and resign themselves to society’s reduced expectations. Our staff, programs and even our building demonstrate that people with disabilities can live, learn, work, play, and participate in civic life as equals. Center staff embody a wide range of visible and hidden disabilities, modeling empowerment for those they serve. They work with individuals and the community to identify and remove barriers that block people with disabilities from living in the community and participating in community life. Our programs are designed to provide information, support, and encouragement to people with disabilities through home health services, the Independent Living program, and advocacy. We are not a social services organization; we are an empowerment and learning community. We are the hub of the disability community in this region. When our work is finished, people with disabilities will be fully accepted, employed, and welcome throughout the 6 counties we serve. See more at http://www.theindependencecenter.org/about-us
